Source : The Free Dictionary

Etymology : Aggiornamento has been in Italian since the late 17th century; it is a borrowing from French ajorner “to postpone to a later date, adjourn.” “Adjournment” is one of the meanings of aggiornamento; the other sense is “bringing up to date, modernization,” familiar in English because of the almost exclusive association of aggiornamento with Pope John XXIII’s (pope from 1958-63) use of the word, in a speech in 1959, referring to the updating the Code of Canon Law, and in 1961 to the Second Vatican Council.
